Maybe there's hope still

The kind of relationship I'm looking for isn't typical. I have major problems with physical intimacy and am asexual. I need emotional support, encouragement, and companionship. But not many people understand that what I want is basically friendship plus. I explained that to my crush tonight and she asked me a few questions and seemed interested. She's gonna talk to her 3 partners and see if everyone agrees with the arrangements. It's long distance and at first she didn't understand how it would work but now she seems to get it. So I'm cautiously optimistic.

What area of your life could use some simplification right now?

Life in general is complex and multifaceted, especially when you live with one or more health conditions. This doesn’t mean, however, that EVERY aspect of our lives has to be at the same level of complexity. It can definitely be beneficial to simplify one or more areas to add balance and a little bit of breathing room.

From cleaning to your weekend schedule to your weekly meal plan, what areas in your life could use a little makeover?

Woke up early

Not quite stupid o clock but close enough. My tummy really hurts. I've got gas pains again. I'm probably going to have a BM soon. I forgot to drink my miralax yesterday so I'm hopeful for a BM today. I feel like my emotions are really stable and I'm happy. 12 days in a row of no migraine is awesome. The adaptogenic coffee is a game changer for me.

What’s one thing no one can ever take away from you?

In general, other people, environments, and situations can steal a lot from us — our joy, our sense of safety, or even our general sense of balance. But there are some things that are so ingrained in our day-to-day or the very fabric of who we are that no one can steal.

What’s that quality, personality trait, hobby, circumstance, experience, or memory fits the bill?

When was the last time you had a “good” day?

Good days are subjective — what they feel like, how they’re measured. To some of us, a good day may be one with “only” moderate pain. To others, it may actually look like being pain-free. Or perhaps, for you, a “good” day is defined by tasks completed or a general improvement in mood.

We’re curious when the last “good” day you had was. How did you spend it? What did it feel like?

Who do you know that inspires hope in others?

When you live with a health condition, hope can be hard to come by. But there are some people in this world who just embody joy — traversing through the world like human sunshine. And if we’re lucky enough, we have the opportunity to bask in their light.

We’re curious if you know a person like that (or, even better, ARE that person!). It could be someone from your past or your present — in fact, it can even be someone you don’t know personally but deeply admire, like book characters or celebrities.

Who comes to mind?

(And in case you needed to hear it today: We’re all deserving of hope. ☀️)

Very curious

I'm going to art group this afternoon. I'm curious about how the adaptogenic coffee is going to effect my art. It enhances focus and energy. I wonder if I will be able to do a drawing with lots of details. I'll post later when I get home. #CheerMeOn

It's a miracle!

I filled out some online forms looking for a hip doctor and they called me today. We discussed how in the past doctor's were not willing to treat my hips because I am young. She said she's been seeing a lot more people in their 30s lately. She's gonna email me some names of doctors. I might finally get the attention for this problem that I deserve.

Dinner was delicious

Just thought I'd share my joy with you all. Salmon is my favorite food. And mashed potatoes are delicious. #CheerMeOn
